Harvest Family Life would like to invite you to attend our 2021 “STAND SUNDAY IMMERSION.” In times of crises children in communities of concentrated poverty are the ones who suffer most. The purpose of this IMMERSION is to bring awareness and a call to action to our faith communities. We hope to explore ways to bring hurting children and families hope, help and healing. We believe the church should be at the core of this movement in ever community. “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”James 1:27

Abused and neglected children was looked at as a ministry of reconciliation.
We saw ourselves as orphans who were pursued, valued, and loved by our heavenly Father.
The care for children was viewed as a mandate for all.
We saw ourselvest the adopted by God. What a humble place from which to serve.

Your church became an integral part of the church to child movement.
